Frequently Asked Questions

How many classrooms does Center Stage Dance Academy have? Our studio features two classrooms with 1,400 sq. ft. of dance floor to allow for more students to receive instruction in a shorter amount of time. In addition to two classrooms, our facility features a homework station in our lobby that allows children to complete school work if they have time between classes. As the studio grows in number of students, classes will be added to keep the student/teacher ratio at a manageable level. This allows for individualized instruction for students as well as room to perform the dance steps correctly as they move throughout the classroom.


How much is tuition? Our classes start at $55 per 1-hour class. Our annual Performance Fee is broken down into monthly installments and included in the tuition price. The Performance Fee is for one child. Each additional child listed on your account will be an additional $45 for the Performance Fee. Please visit the Tuition and Fees page for a complete list of prices.


What do the students wear to class? In the Ballas and Twinkle Toes classes, students are required to wear black or pink leotards, pink tights, tan tap shoes and pink ballet shoes. The older classes may wear a black or pink leotard or a Center Stage Dance tank top or t-shirt. They may wear black, pink or grey leggings, capris, or shorts. Depending on the classes they are registered for, they will need tap shoes, ballets, jazz shoes, and/or gymnastic shoes. A complete packet of information will be emailed to you before classes begin. 


Does Center Stage Dance Academy give awards? Awards are given in tap/ballet/jazz, pointe, gymnastics and hip hop for the following years completed: 3 years, 6 years, 9 years, 12 years and dance graduate. Perfect Attendance Awards and Dance Certificates are also given out. Prior dance years at another dance studio will count.


Will Center Stage Dance Academy have a competition team? Yes, Center Stage CORE Company! Starting with the 2023-2024 dance session, we will have a competition team for ages 9 and up. We will hold auditions in July and begin technique and conditioning classes in August. If interested, inquire with our staff.


Will Center Stage Dance Academy attend dance conventions? Students in our upper level classes will be invited to attend nearby dance conventions. While taking convention classes, students learn from different instructors and better themselves in their dance styles and techniques. Attending convention is an additional cost above dance tuition and only students who demonstrate the ability to handle the fast-paced convention lessons will be invited. Information will be given in advance to properly plan.
